The Geta Bore Farmer’s Cooperative is one of 45 coops to receive resources through the NGO, Technoserve, allowing them access to the technology needed to produce grade 1 washed coffees and the higher prices they garner. The goal of their EMERGENCE project is to directly benefit 45,000+ small coffee farmers by filling holes in production and quality. You can read more about the specifics of their mission on their website.
This coffee was depulped in a efficient and environmentally sustainable pulper before being immediately being soaked overnight, and dried on raised beds for 9-14 days. It is the first washed Ethiopian we’ve received for the season, and it’s a wonderful start to the summer – expect the florals and juicy sparkliness you’ve been missing all winter long.
